I’ve been asked a few times for clarification on the Christine Warren “The Others” series reading order guide. I want to confirm that it is listed in the exact reading order (regardless of the publication date or “new book title” issues that seem to be confusing some readers). The older books are being re-released under new names, and therefore Christine has officially listed THE reading order for each of her books, in her latest publication, as it stands in 2011.
I’ve just picked up a few books from the series, and made sure to purchase the two “Book One’s”. How can that be? Apparently, while “Wolf at the Door” is considered book one in “The Others” series, the author had previously released a book called “Fantasy Fix” with another publisher (Ellora’s Cave). It has since been re-released, as Book#6 (renamed One Bite With a Stranger), and the author states:
It contains new content and can be considered the First Novel of the Others.
LATEST UPDATE: June 24th 2011 –>BIG NOTE on this reading order list. As per the author, this is the TRUE order of her books, (including her e-books) for the series “The Others”. It appears some of her stories had/have different publishers, (and were titled differently in past releases). While they can each be read as stand alone books, this guide lists the books in the order in which they should be read (regardless of publication date).
As per the author’s note for her readers (as found in “Black Magic Woman“)
